An arrogant deer who is always boasting about his speed and strength is finally challenged to a race by a wily toad. All the jungle's inhabitants the jaguar, the toucan, the tapir, and the armadillo gather to watch this unlikely competition. But with the help of his friends, the toad manages to defeat his adversary, proving the value of brains over brawn. Domi, an artist from Mexico, brings her signature brilliant palette and charming humor to the illustrations.
